Lena Waithe Is The Main Event This Season On "Master Of None"


After a 4-year hiatus, Aziz Ansari’s Netflix comedic drama Master of None has returned! But it looks a little different this time.


Netflix

And, accordingly, is going by Master of None Presents: Moments in Love.

The show still delivers what it does best — namely, deep-diving into the ugly side of love and relationships — but focuses 100% on the character of Denise (Lena) and her wife, Alicia (played by Naomi Ackie).

This is a sensitive time for Aziz and Lena, as Aziz is still tiptoeing back into the spotlight after a sexual misconduct scandal, and Lena has recently seen some backlash over some of her other programming.

Maybe these two creators are at their peak when laying out stripped-down, soul-baring stories of real life and love, which this show has in spades.

The two co-wrote every episode, with Aziz in the director’s chair, and it’s a poignant, honest portrayal of 30-something life. I laughed, ugly-cried (a lot), and took to Twitter to share the pain. Check out some reactions below.

Go watch “Master of None” season 3😭!!!It was the most accurate display of a lesbian relationship I’ve ever seen on film(Lena Waithe) and I literally couldn’t believe how beautiful and poetic it was. It felt so good to be represented properly.

I’d like to think that Aziz Ansari was so shaken by charges of toxic masculinity that he wrote season 3 for atonement-he took out all masculinity from the entire series, appearing in a cameo only as an object of pity. And threw in an issue that millions of women identiy with

My most favourite episode of #MasterOfNone3 was the Episode 4! The groundbreaking portrayal of in vitro fertilization of Alicia was simply wonderful. I loved the performance of Cordelia Blair as Nurse Cordelia and Alicia (Naomi Ackie)! @azizansari #lenawaithe #netflix

I knew that the focus of Master of None season 3 was gonna have drastic change in whom the focus of the show was gonna be, so I found myself putting it off. I haven’t been the biggest fan of Lena Waithe’s work outside this show, but she and Naomi Ackie really smoked this season.
